• Bitcoin price at risk of a deeper push south as upside potential is limited.
  • Ethereum price develops a bull-trap pattern, warning of some continued weakness.
  • XRP price may find some bullish momentum due to a key Ichimoku time-cycle.

Bitcoin price faces a double-bottom pattern on its $1,000/3-box Reversal Point and Figure Chart hinting at a substantial drop ahead of the Thanksgiving weekend. Ethereum price filled a prior gap between the bodies of the weekly candlesticks and the weekly Tenkan-Sen, but downside risks remain. XRP price may begin a new swing higher because of a Kumo Twist.

Bitcoin price faces -16% drop ahead of Thanksgiving holiday and weekend

Bitcoin price has developed a double-bottom on its Point and Figure chart, creating a short opportunity for the bears. The hypothetical short entry is a sell stop order at $55,000, a stop loss at $59,000 and a profit target at $42,000. While the Vertical Profit Target Method in Point and Figure Analysis projects an actual target of $37,000, likely, the neckline (black diagonal line) of the prior inverse head-and-shoulders pattern will act as support.

Bulls could invalidate the near-term bearish bias by pushing Bitcoin price to a close above the former 100$ Fibonacci expansion level at $63,000. From there, a renewed push to all-time highs would likely commence.

Ethereum price likely to face continued weakness

Ethereum price, like Bitcoin, shows signs of continued weakness ahead. A bear trap pattern is in development on Ethereum’s $25/3-box Reversal Point and Figure chart. This pattern can create substantial selling pressure as late-term buyers inevitably turn into sellers as prices accelerate their movement south.

The theoretical short entry is a sell stop order at $4,050, a stop loss at $4,150 and a profit target at $3,300. However, the weekly Tenkan-Sen (not shown) is at $3,800 and could limit any further downside pressure for Ethereum. Therefore, any daily close above $4,400 would invalidate the short trade idea.

XRP price could lead altcoins to outperform Bitcoin and Ethereum

XRP price has undoubtedly had a bearish past two weeks. From the November 10th swing high, XRP is down over 24%. However, the Kumo Twist coming up on November 24th could end that downtrend and move higher. Kumo Twists, when Senkou Span A crosses above or below Senkou Span B, are often periods where significant major and minor swing highs and lows are found.

XRP price would need to close at or above the $1.19 value are to return to a bullish market. From there, XRP is poised to begin its run above the $2.00 value area. However, if XRP remains below the Cloud ($1.05) throughout the week, a steep drop towards $0.84 is next.
